    Phoronix: Radeon Gallium3D: A Half-Decade Behind Catalyst?

    What happens when you pull out some vintage computer hardware and run the latest Linux software as well as go back and run some of the oldest software available? Well, in the case of systems with antiquated R300-era ATI Radeon graphics, you are left with a downward slope in performance. Not only is the latest open-source Radeon graphics driver not always performing as well as an ancient Catalyst driver, but also the power consumption of the latest Linux code remains on an incline.

    Right, you've got the point! It seems money means more for Phoronix than reputation.

    It's enough to make tests with suspend composition option enabled.

Well, maybe it doesn't matter to you since you seem to have enough time to waste on forums, but I'd expect someone who wants his articles taken seriously to 1) make sure they are correct before publishing, and 2) if notified of errors, to correct them or at least point them out in the article. Why would you expect a reader to read through potentially pages of comments to find out if an article is actually correct, and how would they know which forum poster is right?
    the truthfulness is not "nice" if a reader do not have time for the truth then he is already lost.
    but in fact we should push the community "Truth" into the main articles.
    maybe a second article for every article with corrections.
    however i do have the time for the truth this means i read the forums to read stuff from people like you.
    sometimes i do it the other way around then i only read the forums and don't read the articles.

    yes we life in a poor world without time for truth.

    now we all know the test is invalid only because of the Phoronix-forum.

    in fact if someone read the article without reading the forum he is just Stupid.
